Groovy Giveaway: Kergan Edwards-Stout's Gifts Not Yet Given
Courtesy of Circumspect Press, this week I'm giving away three copies of Gifts Not Yet Given (and Other Tales of the Holidays), a warm and nuanced collection of short stories from award-winning author Kergan Edwards-Stout. Each story is set around a holiday, from Halloween to Memorial Day, Thanksgiving to Christmas, and the tales illuminate the small yet pivotal moments in which personal awakenings occur and hearts unexpectedly expand (my personal favorite is called "The Fourth Christmas", which is about a gay couple's relationship over a period of four years).
The author’s debut novel, Songs for the New Depression, won the 2012 Next Generation Indie Book Award in the LGBTQ category, was shortlisted in the same category for the Independent Literary Awards, and landed on Out in Print’s list of the Top 15 Books of 2012, among other "Best Book" lists
